yes.......I did capture a few images of the lunar eclipse last night.....but did not stay up to keep checking the progress as it came OUT of total eclipse. So these shots are of the moon GOING INTO total eclipse... and no.....I do not use a tripod. I stand up against the outside brick wall of my house and try to prop the back of my one upper arm against the brick to steady it a bit......point up and shoot. I am only using a 5 MP digital Lumix camera and zoomed to 40x.
For a cool time-lapse version of the entire eclipse go check this link out! Pretty cool:
